OLDCODEX is no stranger to the anime theme world as it has performed several opening themes for Free! as well as ending themes for Kuroko’s Basketball anime.
All the previous five films of the Free! franchise will be broadcast on Animax. The movies will be aired sequentially every Sunday starting from 15th August.
We are yet to know the upcoming anime movie’s plot. Yet, I know that all fans are waiting, poised with their ships! As the release date inches closer, we will soon find out about the fates of Haruka and his friends.
Free! is animated by Kyoto Animation and is loosely based on the light novel, High Speed!, by Koji Oji.
The series revolves around members of a high school boy’s swimming team. The youngsters participate in a swimming tournament right before they graduate from middle school and go their separate ways.
Free! has a unique concept by using the sport of competitive swimming as their focal point. The animation, art, and sound used in the series complement the story well.
